Absolutely terrible. Tried to give him appropriate case history so we could figure out what was going on, and he told me it was “not important.” Interestingly enough, I fought with my insurance to visit another doctor, and told her the case history- and they found a genetic disorder. Amazing what happens when you listen to your patients for 5 minutes. Ridiculous. I would still be living undiagnosed, with no medication or any help, if I had stayed with Dr. Williams.

After first testing, then visiting with his nurse and/or nurse practitioner, patient's actual time with Dr. Williams is very limited. When he walks in the exam room, its obvious he wants to spend as little time as possible...almost as if he is looking at his watch...and if a patient has questions, concerns, or suggests more information about a procedure, she is greeted with a nervous and narcissistic laugh and "Who have YOU been talking to" response. ..as in how dare you question or be involved in your treatment....making you feel about 2 feet tall. And, maybe this is just a little thing to some but a big thing to me - he won't look you in the eye. William Williams gets a B+ for medical treatment, and a C- for his bedside manner.

Dr. Williams is one of the best doctors I've ever seen. He is concerned about you personally as well as your illness. He explains what is going on and takes time with his patient. He makes you at ease and comfortable, which to me is important. I am not uneasy about seeing him again.

He was prompt to the appointment, he was courteous and thorough in his taking of history & physical and took time to listen to our concerns. After appropriate testing he sent me to an Allergy & Asthma specialist, which he felt like could treat my symptoms appropriately. I would go again and I would recommend.
